Happy Friday! I’ve been saying this every Friday but it’s been another fun filled week. My husband and I are currently in Florida enjoying a few days of sun and relaxation with our friends.  I love traveling with my kids but I have to say that a few days away with my husband is pretty nice! Anyway, today as usual,  I am linking up for for Friday Favorites with  Erika, Narci and Andrea.

Friendship Memory Jar

As I mentioned last Friday, this past weekend I spent away with several girlfriends as part of my belated birthday celebration. It has been years since I have gone on a girls trip and it is so GOOD for the soul! I can’t tell you how many laughs we had and memories that we made on this trip. Just too good!

My friends surprised me with the SWEETEST birthday gift- a friendship memory jar! Everyone filled the jar with personal notes and memories from our friendship. The outside of the jar said ” Friendship isn’t a big thing, it’s a million little things…”

This group of girls was a mix of friends I have known for a few years through a lot of years…I love that everyone blended together for this weekend. We are already talking about making this weekend an annual trip and I sure hope we are able to pull it off next year! It is never easy to get a group of moms away from their busy schedules, so I am so grateful these girls were able to make it!

Tie Dye Project with Kids

Between last week’s girls trip and getting ready for our trip to Florida, things have been a little hectic at home. But I wanted to try out a little tie dyeing project with the kids. For the first time I bought a kit that included EVERYTHING (but the shirts) to make the project. It was so easy and a lot of fun.

All the details on our project–> HERE!

Florida Fun

My post is going to be pretty short today as I am enjoying our trip in Florida. It has been great to relax and not to be on any sort of time schedule.

I was happy to find this palm leave top on sale at Evereve. Last week it was an additional 20% off but it is still a good deal:)

I’ve even gotten to do a little reading and I am just about finished with this book. It is another WWII fiction book about a woman living on the Normandy coast of France. I should have probably picked a lighter read for the beach but I get sucked into WWII books every time. This book I would definitely recommend!

I’ll need to find another good book to read on the plane ride home. Any suggestions?


I hope you have a wonderful weekend and see you back here next week! I need to soak up all the sun and sand that I can in the next few days!

    I’m a sucker for WW2 books as well! I LOVE the friendship memory glass — how thoughtful and creative.

    Enjoy your alone time with your hubs! It’s amazing how even just a few days away together can make such a difference. You’ve reminded me I need to plan a small getaway with my hubs soon, it’s been way too long!
